How do you give up cheese?


You don't have to! Vegan cheese! If there is a certain time when vegan cheese isn't availble, remember that it's not oxygen. If how dairy cheese is made isn't something you agree with, a little sacrifice every once in a while is a small price to pay for doing your part to create a more peaceful world! -Carly Taylor




Do you get enough protein in a vegan diet?


cronometer.com or the MyFitnessPal app allows you to plug in what you're eating & shows you how much protein you ate that day, it even breaks it down into amino acids! Also, just about every vegetable contains protein!




How do you make sure to get enough calories?


"The vegan equivalents of animal products aren't usually much lower in calories. In fact, it's easy to gain weight when you first go vegan because when you find vegan donuts/vegan burgers/pizza, etc - it's very easy to go overboard because you want to try all of the options! Track your intake and caloric need for your body weight! Perhaps seeing the numbers first hand might make you realize that you are getting enough!" -Carly Taylor




What if vegan options are difficult to find?


The healthiest vegan staples are the cheapest and most accessible - like rice, beans, oats, pasta, bananas, etc. -Carly Taylor




My family's culture makes eating vegan hard. What do I do?


Bring delicious vegan food to share with them! You don't have to avoid family events or make it a big deal at all. We can still make delicious, culturally traditional dishes that are vegan by just swapping a few ingredients. Pinterest is your best friend for recipes!! - Carly Taylor




What if someone cooks meat for you in their own home?


"If you wouldn't eat dog meat just because someone cooked it for you in their home, I'd encuorage you to ask yourself what the difference is?" "You can easily bring a dish of your own/remind them of what you don't eat beforehand if you know they'll be cooking. If it's a last minute offer you may just inspire them to start making changes of their own once they ask you more about why you're doing what you're doing!" -Carly Taylor
